A UNIX Shell script wrapper for the VI editor.

It is recommended VIB be used as an alias for the VI editor.

VIB creates backups of any files edited using VI to a specified location while maintaining X backup revisions, and keeping a revision history of who made changes and when to a master log.

VIB is Ideal in environments where you have multiple users logging into a UNIX system and you wish to keep track of whom is modifying files.

For example, VIB could be 'aliased' in all new user shell accounts, so that when they edit a file using "vi", a log entry will be generated, and a backup copy of the file with their username will also be notated.

The goal of VIB is to assist with tracking who modified what file, when on a UNIX/Linux systsm.
